"america live" begins right now. >> reporter: we start a with a fox news alert for you. new numbers from the treasury department. the spending crisis in washington is getting worse and it's hitting every american work wer a whooping new bill. welcome to "america live" i'm alisyn camerota in for megyn kelly who is headed to colorado for wednesday night's debate. that is where domestic issues like our debt will be the main focus. this comes as new data shows just how deep of a hole we are in. the u.s. treasury announcing that washington spent nearly $1.2 trillion more than it took in last year. that is a debt increase of close to $11,000 per household in just 12 months. overall, our nation is more than $16 trillion in the red. that is a massive bubble that threatens our entire economy. how do the candidates handle this tomorrow night? let's ask chris stirewalt our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on live, and
-immigrant is repulsive. don't use a term like that. megyn: is that the guy we're likely to see show up this week? because that, of course, was with the great debate coach who then got let go by the romney camp. >> we'll see. i still think you don't want to be responding, you want to be laying out your views, and you want to be prosecuting the president. he needs to go in there with the mind of a tough-minded district attorney who's trying to prosecute the guy who he wants to be on trial, not defending himself. megyn: the two harvard law school graduates, romney also was a harvard mba, will square off and try to tell americans that they're very relatable. [laughter] we'll look forward to that. all right, chris, thank you. >> thank you. megyn: well, these debates, i mean, they're great theater for the american public, and they really do help a lot of americans decide whether it's just a visceral reaction or i like that guy better, they help americans decide. and a lot of the times it's the gaffes that turn people against the candidates. these campaigns, they're searching for the one defining moment, but of
to show us these advertisements that come out from either side -- when the republicans assault obama and his party, they don't like it. but now they are doing it to mitt romney. >> they have been doing it all along. it came with some risk. they knew that there were risks. we saw it in calling favorability numbers for the president. you would think that they would've done would have done this by now, kill mitt romney's character. but it survived well enough with a few dings along the way. the danger for the president is to have to work to fill the need to launch this kind of an amazing personal attack, to say that the former governor of massachusetts, the guy who was a bishop in his church and who is the nominee of a major presidential party is a flat-out liar is a big deal, and i think there probably will be some backlash to the president on that. megyn: the reporting this morning on politico is that the president was po. and he had a long conversation with himself about what happened, he decided to go after romney is a dishonest person. there is a question about whether that is goin
by islamists militants on a u.s. outpost on the anniversary of september 11th. that was never going to be a good thing or help the president's status on foreign policy with voters. and the handling of it, it has continued even until yesterday on the daily show with jon stewart the president continues to have trouble explaining what happened and explaining how he managed to talk about this in the way that he did. so, yeah, you'd have to say that libya is at the heart of that big drop. megyn: it's amazing what a difference that issue is starting to have in this election, because the same polling group did a poll on foreign policy about a week ago and asked about everything from china, to iran, to egypt, and let me just give you some of the numbers. it shows the two candidates about deadlocked on who would better handle iran. a slight edge for the president when it comes to who would handle egypt better. slowed a slight edge -- stronger edge to romney and who would handle china better and get tough on trade with china the issue of libya seems to be the thing that narrowed this gap from

the brightest. thank you for joining us today. jenna: "america live" starts right now. megyn: fox news alert. you are looking live at iowa and virginia. two critical swing states where we are waiting to hear from obama and romney as we take on new questions today about who won the debate and who came out ahead after last night's town hall debate. and why those are actually two different issues, who won and who came out ahead. welcome to "america live." i am megyn kelly. most of the debate headlines focused on tools like tbs news, which asked uncommitted voters who won last night debate. they gave the president a slight edge. 37% saying obama and 30% saying mitt romney. governor romney was the clear winner on several issues. uncommitted voters saying that he would do a better job handling the deficit and the economy and handling taxes. >> 9 million americans without work. i was in the one to 5.4%. this was the president's plan. he said he would cut in half the deficit. he has not done that, either. in fact, he doubled it. the middle class is getting crushed under the policies of the president
catherine herridge joins us live in washington. we know you've been watching the hearing closely. what do you think. >> reporter: in his opening statement the chairman is saying the state department in that late-day briefing to reporters made his position known drawing a sharp distinction from the white house narrative that was a demonstration that spun out of control. >> they held a broad news conference over the phone in which they made it very clear that it had never been the state department's position, i repeat, never been the state department's position that in fact this assault was part of a row actioa reaction to a video or the like. this is corroborated by numerous witnesses and whistle-blowers. >> reporter: committee members told this morning in opening statements that there was a preoccupation in washington with reducing the number of american security personnel at the consulate and replacing them with libyan guards, that there was a rush to move towards a reduced presence after a series of attacks, including the failed assassination attempt on the british ambassador. >> the se
and all that stuff. they tried to psych up the democratic base ahead of us. the base on the president's performance two weeks ago, for him to make eye contact with any sentiment human being would be a victory for the president. also, he did better in the second half of the debate than he did in the first half of the debate. as voters were scoring, he said yes, he was pretty good, he closed on that. that's different than what happens in the larger context of the election. in the larger context of the election, what the president needed to do was to disqualify mitt romney and say that this guy was not presidential timber. six months of character attacks on air. they were backed up in person on the debate stage last night. the goal was to say that that mitt romney was not fit to qualified for office because of who he was personally, and what the underlying polls say is that the president did not achieve that goal. in fact from the most telling one to me was that romney beat the president on leadership by a dozen points. megyn: significantly, yes. barack obama was at 65, mitt romney at 77

, interesting remark. thanks for joining us. jenna: "america live" starts right now. megyn: fox news alert on a very different sounding president obama giving a feisty speech on the campaign trail after what bun dates call serious hits he took last night from governor romney in the big debate. well tomorrow to "america live." back in new york, folks i'm megyn kelly. a look back now in denver, colorado where a fired up barack obama has just finished this rally. he was going off on governor romney in that campaign appearance, and we heard a very different-sounding barack obama at this rally. it comes after the president's top campaign advisers, hour after hour hit the air waves clearly trying to reframe the presidential's debate performs answer. political observers said he looked irritated, annoyed and was unhappy to be on the stage while mitt romney sounded presidential. thousand they try to make the argument that governor romney only won last night because he lied. here is the president moments ago. >> we also had our first debate last night. when i got onto the stage i met this very spiri
'll definitely show some clips of that, right? jon: we'll see. if i hit my notes. thanks for joining us. jenna: "america live" starts right now. megyn: fox news alert on what has become a must-see event in campaign 2012, tonight's vice presidential debates. welcome to "america live," everyone, i'm megyn kelly, reporting live from danville, kentucky, where less than eight hours from right now vice president joe biden and republican nominee paul ryan will face off for the first and only time in this contest. new video just in to the fox newsroom showing mr. biden arriving in kentucky for tonight's big debate, and the debate comes as the romney/ryan ticket today opens up its biggest lead of in this entire election. the republicans leading by a full point now i in the real clear politics average of all polls, that's the first time that's happened since mitt romney secured the nomination. you can see the course of the last year with the blue line for president obama and the red line for mitt romney. and you can bet that this means new pressure for the vice president going into tonight. chris stirew
that the governor would use to try to make that revenue neutral would not bring up the total amount, but it is important to note that she did say that tax and cuts would be hard. megyn: there is some troubling news from the unemployment department on jobs. applications rose to 360,000. that is up from last week. a second report shows planned layoff 4.9% in september. yesterday the commerce department said factory orders dropped 5.2% in august. still, just a short time ago, president obama said today's report shows that the economy is headed in the right direction. >> after losing about 800,000 jobs a month when i took office, we have more jobs and we found out this link at the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office.

for joining us today. jenna: "america live" starts right now. megyn: sounds sounds are sounds great is right. fox news alert a stunning turn in the numbers for this election as a wide lead for the president has all but disappeared with just 22 days to go. welcome to "america live," everyone, i'm megyn kelly. just take a look at the numbers. on september 30th the "real clear politics" average of all polls had the president 74 electoral votes ahead of governor romney. when you looked at how it's likely to turn out in terms of which way states were leaning they used the polls to calculate at that point that the president had 265 votes, just about locked up, compared to just 191 for governor romney. you need 270 to win. fast forward to today, and we see the predicted 74-vote gap has shrunk to a mere 10 votes, and with the momentum now going to the former governor of massachusetts it is hard to imagine how there could be more on the line for these two men tomorrow night at the next presidential debate. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital editor and host of "fox news live." i know you don't sa
